The original Titanfall made use of Microsoft’s Azure cloud servers for its online action, but with the sequel going multi-platform Respawn Entertainment have looked elsewhere for their dedicated server support.
Lead Programmer for Respawn, Jon Shiring, said a few words about the new partnership:
“The Titanfall 2 launch is going to be bigger and better than the last game and what’s really important to me is that the game just works.
We wanted to make sure we had an insane amount of scalability and reliability, so we partnered with Multiplay because they have a great deal of expertise in game server hosting and a very clever auto-scaling product that can abstract away different cloud environments that lets us focus on making games,” he said.
“We have been working closely with Multiplay to ensure we utilize multiple clouds as well as bare metal servers in every region our game will be on sale. Giving us more flexibility, more local data centers, endless scalability, and the highest reliability will result in the best service we can offer to millions of players.”
Titanfall 2 launches 28 October on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
A technical test is planned for the game’s multiplayer at some point before release, but no date has been confirmed by Respawn just yet.

Multiple sources close to Eurogamer are saying the Nintendo NX will be a high-powered portable console that can connect to your TV for big screen gaming when at home.
The console is rumoured to run on Nvidia’s Tegra mobile processor, with development kits said to be running on the Tegra X1 chip which has seen use in the Shield Android TV console and the Google Pixel C tablet.
According to an in-depth report by Digital Foundry, the NX “is a mobile games machine, albeit one with a twist - principally that the unit can plug into a base station that transforms it into something more akin to a conventional console… at a really basic level, NX is effectively a reversal of the Wii U GamePad concept.”
Earlier rumours had suggested cartridges were the physical media of choice for the NX after it was spotted that upcoming Zelda title Breath of the Wild’s trademarks covered cartridge-based games, although digital downloads are also likely to be supported.
Nintendo is apparently suggesting developers use 32GB cartridges.
Changing from a disc to cartridge-based system means that backwards compatibility is not likely to be a feature of the NX, however there are reports that certain Wii U games could receive updated NX ports.
Nintendo refused to confirm or deny the latest hearsay regarding their next console, but reports suggest the company will be officially unveiling the NX in September.
The Nintendo NX is planned for release in March 2017.

An official blog post, which has since been pulled, announced Operation: Skull Rain and gave details on the new content, which includes two new operators and one new map.
The attacking operator, Capitao, carries a tactical crossbow that can fire asphyxiating bolts that burn oxygen within a certain radius, as well as micro smoke grenades that can mask team positions and movement.
The defensive operator, Caveira, possesses the “Silent Step” ability that enables her to sneak up on enemies to immobilize and interrogate them, revealing their teammates' positions.
The new map is set in a Brazilian favela and supports exterior shell destruction, making it the most destructible map yet.
Also added is a new angled grip attachment, which makes the transition between hip fire and aiming down sights much quicker, and a surrender option for ranked matches. A majority vote will be required to surrender but matches can only be forfeit before the third round.
More info will be revealed during the Season Two Xbox Pro League Finals livestream on 30 July.

It’s promised there'll be even more of South Park to explore this time around, as well as many gameplay enhancements, including a refined battle system, revamped looting and even crafting options, which allow you to create equipment to be used in combat.

The favour you've previously earnt as the New Kid and used to climb the social ladder was all for naught, however, as now the kids are playing a new game, you’re back to square one.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole lands on Xbox One, PS4 and PC 6 December.

The $1.1 million Kickstarter stretch goal has been smashed and thus, Nightdive Studios are working on Mac and Linux versions. Also, after talks with Sony, System Shock will be releasing on PS4.
Jason Fader, Project Director on System Shock, wants to reassure fans that RPG systems haven't been canned altogether and the team have some ideas in mind:
"RPG systems can imply a lot of things, so I'll go over some core concepts that we're following with the overall systems design:
I know that isn't very detailed, but it's still early in the game’s development, and things can change. Those rules above are what we're confident in delivering,” he said.
